The Soldier’s Creed

December 20, 2011

I have had the privilege of serving as a commissioned officer in the US Army.  It is something that has marked me for life and I am deeply grateful that the Lord allowed me the opportunity to serve my country in this manner – it was an honor.

Following is the Soldier’s Creed. Some great statements and many still apply to my ife.

I am an American Soldier.

I am a warrior and a member of a team.

I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values.

I will always place the mission first.

I will never accept defeat.

I will never quit.

I will never leave a fallen comrade.

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.

I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.

I am an expert and I am a professional.

I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.

I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.

I am an American Soldier.

Strong statements. Could these be adapted somewhat to apply to your life?
